Thanks Guys I have taken some photos of the chuck, but, being a newbie to these forums, I haven't figured out how to attach the jpegs yet. The router is made by black and decker, and sold here in Canada, I bought it about 5 or so years ago. All of my bits stick in the chuck. I have tried keeping the bits up from the bottom of the chuck, I've tried to put the bits to the bottom of the chuck, they always stick. I've tried torquing the bits down excessively as well as too loosely. Something I haven't tried again. I wasn't comfortable in the too loose idea. I even tried lubricating the outside of the collet. In order to get the bits out, I have to use a piece of hardwood, and rap the router bit from below the base plate.
This happens whether or not I use the router in the table or freehand. So I know that it's not dependant on the use of the router.
Hey I just figured out how to attach the jpegs. I have the router as whole, the chuck and collet in and out of the router.
Thanks for all the help so far.
